    The ending was anticlimactic. I was looking around for the continuation, but there isn't any!

    There was a story the other day on the local news about a guy who went into a gas station pulling a large trailer, parked so the trailer was over top of the openings where they fill the tanks, then used a trap door in the bottom of the trailer to siphon thousands of dollars worth of fuel into a storage tank hidden in the trailer. Low-tech but effective.

    This is honestly the only reason why I don't cheer these hackers on. It's all fun and games until the problem hits you at home.

    My last few fills have averaged $90. I'd walk or ride before I went to jail though.

    That was pretty horrible. Sounds like something not many people would be able to get away with.
